This table lists the musou stat and how much musou is needed to increase the number of hits in your musou. (Assuming you use the full bar when you musou.) Do note that the musou stat values here may not necessarily be the lowest threshold needed on the musou stat to increase the number of musou hits. It's just a guaranteed stat that has been tested.

  • D = Dash attack, N# = Normal attack, E# = Evolution attack, JN = Jump Normal, JC = Jump Charge, C# = Charge attack, True = True Musou.
  • What do these values mean? They determine how much damage you do per swing. Refer to the Battle Mechanics page for more details.
  • The N in the values represents each hit in multi-hit attacks such as jump charges, C3s, and Musous. The final number is usually the knockback finisher of the combo(if it has one).
  • "Base" represents the damage value of the attack by itself. The "Combo" damage value represents the total sum if you had connected with the all previous attack strings. (So C3 combo value is the total value of N1+N2+C3 values)
  • E8 always causes the enemy to be juggled often causing the E9 hit to do 50% damage. The value that is written in the table is the estimated value that E9 would cause if the enemy was not being juggled.

Temper Builds

Build Tempers Mods Emblem 1 Emblem 6 Modes Suggested Element Description
50320 24 2 in Attack Upgrade Thrust, Crescent Any Confront Lightning Offensive build focused on stunning and massive damage.
52300 24 2 in Attack Upgrade Crescent Any Suppress, Showdown, Defeat, Destroy Lightning Used for mostly base defending in showdown and suppress. Easy to get KOs too for judgement.
50213 25 2 in Attack Upgrade, 1 in Max Temper Thrust Any Confront Lightning More offensive build to kill with Aggression and the long Musou.
?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? Insert own build here. Keep description short. Just add a new row.

Note: Builds listed here are the number of stars you should put in each stat. The order goes: Attack, Damage, Defense, Life, Musou. So a build of "43320" means to put: 4 stars in attack, 3 stars in damage, 3 stars in Defense, 2 stars in Life, and 0 stars in Musou.



C3 is a very effective and very deadly combo, great for getting flasks to upgrade. The last hit is also quite dangerous.

Emblem Thoughts

Thrust It's high motion damage value along with elemental activation allows it to deal large damage to enemies. Especially with lightning or wind element. It is also the only emblem with elemental activation. However, if you have it on the C1 it has a large start up time.
Crescent Very good for defeat as it can kill soldiers in one hit with around 2-3 attack upgrades depending on the stats of the Axe. It also drops the enemy where they are, allowing for easy flask pickup.


Hand Axe's C3 is arguably very overpowered if you have a decent amount of Attack Tempers. The downfall is that it chops downward and won't hit the enemy if you don't aim correctly. A common tactic for Hand Axe is to use Aggression and C4 plus lightning to stun the enemy, then use Thrust on the enemy while they are stunned. The C4 of the Hand Axe is tricky, you can control it and it will look different on your screen, but on the enemies screen it will always be thrown in the default trajectory. So the enemy may be hit by it, even if they don't see it hitting them on their screen.

Use Jump Charge to cancel an enemy's moves. You can also use the Crescent emblem to do this as well.


Use the Crescent emblem on C1 and flask up attack ASAP.

Use C3 on the 1st batch of enemies you find to get 2-3 attack boosts then head to a nice thick red or yellow area and starting herding troops into mobs and C1. Run, Mob, Circle, C1 and repeat in a large circle where you're killing. While Crescent is the best "Solider farming" emblem, you don't need it. While other emblems create AoE attacks, also useful, C4 and C5 have good range if you ever need another way to get at soldiers. This weapon has a naturally wide attack range, making it useful all around. Although if given the chance you should still have Crescent as C1, because there is no denying how powerful an enemy clearer it is.


Despite the slow running speed, it does have Attack and Damage slots on 1 and 3 respectively to allow for base rushing. The C4 of the Hand Axe is also good for base defending to interrupt the attacks of enemies, especially in tower bases.
